At Senate Hearing, Execs Blame Each Other


Executives from BP, rig operator Transocean and Halliburton, which built infrastructure around an oil rig that exploded off the cost of Venice, La, on April 20th, testified today in front of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Not surprisingly, each executive sought to blame the others for their role in the massive oil spill wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast, the Washington Post reports.

BP is working with Brunswick Group to handle communications around the spill. A Halliburton spokesperson told PRNewser today that all public relations efforts are being handled internally. PRNewser has reached out to Transocean to inquire about their agency partners and will update this post once we hear back.
